Hobbies & Interests: I am an avid enthusiast of botany and gardening! During my free time, I can be found tending to my garden, gaming, lifting weights, or working on CAPSI related projects.

Position Goals:

  1. To encourage more students to get involved with CAPSI at the national level.
  2. To establish mandatory CAPSI membership to all incoming students at UBC.

Career Goals:

I am still unsure about my career goals, but currently I am leaning towards either becoming an advocate for the pharmacy expanded scope of practice or becoming an independent pharmacy owner.
